Tej Kohli, Sir Richard Branson

Sir Richard is a great role model for budding entrepreneurs. He started at the age of 16 with a student magazine and then developed a record mail order business. Taking selling records further, he went into retailing big time with a chain of record stores that became Virgin Megastores. Never one to stand still, this serial entrepreneur took his Virgin brand and business acumen to the airline industry, Virgin Atlantic, financial services, Virgin Money, and many more business sectors, including developing commercial space tourism with Virgin Galactic. This shows what can be achieved through committed entrepreneurial ambition. Tej Kohli recently had the privilege of meeting Sir Richard Branson at his private retreat on Necker Island.
